Andrea Marr's new EP "Sass & Brass"
Andrea Marr Releases New EP "Sass & Brass:
Andrea Marr, considered the queen of Australian Blues for her high energy, joyous performances, and clever tongue-in-cheek lyrical content, is proud to announce the release of her first official soul album – the EP “Sass & Brass.” The sound is a combination of soul and blues, filled with the genuine passion of someone who has truly loved and lived this music. It’s a powerfully energetic, brassy, big sound, reminiscent of Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, Ike & Tina Turner, and the JBs. The album is the result of a second collaboration with co-producer Cam Scott, also Andrea’s keyboard player and arranger for several years. It’s a follow up to her last CD “Little Sister Got Soul,” which peaked at #18 on the Living Blues Radio Charts, and garnered many recognitions and rave reviews, including 2009 Australian Female Blues Artist of the Year. Although short and sweet, Andrea’s new EP serves up a heaping helping of steamy, sultry soul to shake your booty too.
We're very proud to announce the release of "Sass & Brass." The album will be available in physical and online stores starting Tuesday, November 20th. We're currently offering the EP for advanced sale on the Blue Skunk website, and advanced digital downloads are available through iTunes and eMusic among other services.
